Bored kids = destroyed house.
That’s ok, they’re playing veterinary hospital/animal shelter. Ever since we rescued Charlie, Mr. Wonderful’s new service dog from the shelter, the kids have been obsessed with animals. Making them feel better, finding them forever homes.
I love this! The seven year old drew the comparison between finding the stuffed dogs and bears and pandas forever homes and his forever home with us. He and his brother are adopted and we try to weave their stories in and through our daily life as part of an ever-changing narrative.
Something’s getting through! Not just with animal rescue but with adoption and helping animals or people when they need it. We’ve been so blessed so we should bless others.
Maybe I’m reading too much into this little one act play in my living room, but for now I’m just going to bask in its warmth.
